    I’ve been in 3 weddings and have never worn the dresses again.  One was in a color I hated and an odd style (donated it to Goodwill!), one was just not my style and the other was ill-fitting and a weird length (tea length just isn’t flattering on many people).  I love my friends, but not the dresses they chose. 😉

    I am interested to see if people have worn their dresses again.  I don’t know anyone IRL who has done it.

    Yes, it was an off the rack dress and it was more of a cottony material and a pale yellow.  I love it!  Plus it was less expensive than a "real" bridesmaid dress.

    I have never worn any of the bridesmaid dresses I have and probably never will (unless it’s to an ugly bridesmaid dress party!). I specifically choose mine so the girls could wear them again. I am even considering ordering one for myself! 🙂

    Nope. The dress is very pretty, just too fancy to wear.

    I’ve worn one. It was a DB tea length, in Victorian Lilac. I think it looked better the second time around.

    I’ve been in 3 weddings and have never reworn the bridesmaid dress.  However, back when I was in college, I found the prettiest bridesmaid dress at a bridal salon that was going out of business.  You really couldn’t even tell the dress was a bridesmaid dress, and I paid only $50 for it!  I wore it to a formal my sorority was having, and it looked great!

    I have worn Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses again.  A couple of them I cut up and altered to be a bit more my style, but others were perfect for nice dinners out or the nicer dinners on a cruise.  However, most of my friends have had more casual weddings with shorter dresses, so I can see where it would be more difficult if the dresses were really fancy.

    I wore the one I had for my cousins wedding on a cruise. It was fitting for the occasion!

    I have an Aria Bridesmaid or Best Man knee length dress that’s green… I feel like it’s totally un-rewearable.  I don’t think the dresses my BMs wore are re-wearable either… they definitely screaaammmm "bridesmaid dress".

    No I will never be wearing my bridesmaid dress again. I only have one and it’s a tealish color I don’t care for.  And it doesn’t provide the support I need in the chest area.  Not to toot my own horn, but the bridesmaids dresses I chose were off the rack, and very cute in a normal everyday color.  So I know my bridesmaids can wear them again.  I kind of want one for myself 🙂

    My sister’s Bridesmaid or Best Man dress was a two piece, and altering the corset top cost a fortune.  But it fit me so well afterward I wore it several times with black slacks as an evening outfit.  I also rewore a long Bridesmaid or Best Man dress from a diferent wedding as part of a Halloween costume once.

    I re-wore one that was a regular Church type dress from Chadwick’s again. Actually I probably woere it twice till something weird happened to it when it was stored for the winter in the attic.  One would never see the light of day again and one I could wear as an evening gown if I lost the 20 pounds I’ve gained.

    i have never been a bridesmaid, but was very conscious of the problem of not being able to wear the dress again.  so i asked all of my BMs to choose their own black dress, with certain guidelines of course, so that they can wear it again.  one of my BMs got her dress at target!
